Women found to be greener than men. More female scientists, please

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Wednesday, November 17, 2010,
Fellow travellers, I am not at all surprised that women are deemed to be the greener gender. They are much closer to nature than men, and Gaia is a sassy sister, after all.

They are also more likely to believe in global warming, and that it is a serious problem. This shows that, contrary to so many sexist stereotypes, they are clearly much more rational than men.

But when I say rational, I don't mean the fake male kind of "rationalism". You know, the white coat-wearing, detached, cold, clinica...

Environmental and gender aspects of Chilean miner story

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Thursday, October 14, 2010,
Fellow travellers, I know that a lot of people (even some on the left) are now celebrating the release of those 33 Chilean miners after their "terrible ordeal" under the ground.

Now, I don't want to condemn people outright for feeling a sense of relief. However, I do think it should be remembered that these men aren't simply heroes. After all, they are employees of a massive and hugely profitable mining company and therefore complicit in the rape of Gaia.

Also, anyone who is concerned about ge...

Feeding the forces of darkness

While our new Prime Minister has been a vast improvement over the last, sometimes he's just as appalling and reactionary. Take this new directive, encouraging women to breastfeed their babies for the first six months.

This is a clear attempt to enslave women yet again. Surely, it would be much more empowering for them if the men were made to perform this duty instead.

The age of bizarre

Fellow travellers, you may have read about this strange event, in which the reactionary, peenie-waving London Mayor "Bonking Boris" Johnson saved Franny Armstrong - climate change activist and director of the searing film The Age of Stupid - from an attack by several young women.

I'm sure that this "brave" act was completely unnecessary. Ms Armstrong surely could have protected herself had he not arrived so "heroically" on the scene. That's why these comments are so bizarre: "He was my knight ...

Gorgon project the rape of Gaia

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Sunday, September 20, 2009,
Fellow travellers, we all know that big business is full of appalling peenie-waving testosteroids who despise women and nature in equal measure. But most of the time they aren't overt about it. And if you do point out how sexist they are, they will invariably deny it. Sadly, most of the Great Unloofahed and even many in the media accept these furtive protestations as the truth.

But sometimes their appalling misogyny is so brazen and clear that no amount of obfuscation could possibly suffice! ...
